Welcome to ACCROSS @ Tor View
Our exciting and innovative college provision launched in September 2015. We are working closely with Accrington and Rossendale College (AccRoss) and Lancashire County Council to provide continuing education, independence skill development and work-related training for young adults aged 19 – 21 with special educational needs from our locality.
Update We are delighted to inform you that we have now had confirmation from the Local Authority that places are available at college for the forthcoming academic year 2018-19. The college year will commence from Tuesday 4th September 2018.
Please note that the college will be known as Valley College @ Tor View from September and will be independent from Accrington & Rossendale College. We do however intend to maintain a close working relationship with AccRoss, utilising their expertise and facilities wherever this is appropriate.
Our vision is to create an educational hub at our Ewood Campus that delivers personalised training and support to help young people with special educational needs to:
- Control their own lives and develop their ambitions
- Become valued employers, employees and members of social groups and communities
- Engage in meaningful work-related learning and develop their enterprise skills
- Get a job and live independently
- Secure the best possible post school outcomes
This provision will compliment provision on the ACROSS site and will involve students spending a large part of their working week in the local Rossendale/Hyndburn community.
